Anything Tropical usually contains pineapple so I'd avoid it. But I would call Taco Bell and tell then what happen.

This thread needs a Mtn. Dew trigger warning. I'm craving one so bad now.

Yes you talk to Pepsi. Taco Bell has nothing to do with it.



I though it was a Baja taco :(

I personally think the issue is with the Mt Dew/Pepsi company not Taco Bell. If it doesn't say it on the product how the hell would they know? KWIM? That is the company providing the products problem.

Quoting Stephanie ☀ Emmett:" Thank you! It's a new allergy so i'm still getting used to it. Tropical flavors are a definite no no now haha."


No problem.
I'm actualky pretty sure there are some other foods you should probably stay away from being allergic to pineapple. I know a lot of people with latex allergies will have a reaction to pineapple, bananas, kiwis and strawberries because they contain a protein almost identical to latex so the body assumes it's latex and vice versa.



Definitely write to Pepsi about it though as they own Mt. Dew.

From past working experience in a food place, I'd say "it MIGHT contain pineapple, but I am not sure". If I wasn't 100%, I would NEVER give a direct answer especially to someone with an allergy. I'd most deff be calling Taco Bell up today and letting them know what happened so they can properly educate their workers/employees.

Except the person read the box so it was safe for them to assume it didn't because the box said nothing of the sorts. If the person didn't try and read the ingredients you would be right but since they did it is the Pepsi companies fault not the person at Taco Bell.

So I emailed pepsi and asked if there was any pineapple in the natural or artificial flavors.. and this is the email I got back..



"Dear Stephanie,
Thank you for chatting with me today.
I reached out to our Scientific and Regulatory Department and unfortunately the information you had requested is considered proprietary information because it is part of the unique product formula. "



All I asked was if there was pineapple, I didn't ask WHAT exactly was in it.. What if it wasn't pineapple at all? Then i'd have to figure out another allergy.. ughhhhhhhhh

I'd say email them again and use statements like "you will be held accountable" or "I may need to contact a lawyer" things like that to scare them.
